    Martinez, who served in the Iraq War before becoming an actor, welcomed his first child in May 2012. "I hold her every second that I can," he told E! News at the time. "I kiss her every half a second. It's an amazing feeling. It really is. I want to keep her the way she is and just hold her in my arms."

    "We watched Dancing With the Stars together the other night," he added. "She was laying on my chest. She didn't agree with [judge] Len [Goodman] either, which was nice. She kind of fussed when Len gave his score."

    Martinez can be seen playing a firefighter in the new drama series Saf3 (pronounced safe).
